Meet Zip, a bright-eyed and alert 6 month-old pup who looks to be the perfect mix of Border Collie and Husky. He came into an overcrowded county dog shelter as a stray so we don’t have any history on him or how he came to be homeless. From the shelter, Zip made the trip to Canine Lifeline so that he could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for that perfect permanent new home. We’ve been very impressed with Zip since he arrived. For a youngster, he has excellent crate manners and keeps his crate spotless so should master housetraining quickly in his new home. Zip enjoys playing with other dogs so would enjoy having a canine buddy in his new home. He’s an active young dog who does need an energetic family who has the time to keep him busy and focused. For a kid, Zip walks quite well on a leash. He also takes treats very gently and loves to dole out kisses to his human friends. This pup would make a great walking, jogging, or hiking buddy for his new family. Zip weighs about 22 pounds currently and we expect he’ll be about 40 pounds once full-grown. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Zip. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
